Mike Trout went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.
This a day after Trout pounded two home runs and knocked in five. The fickle nature of baseball in action. In Saturday's case, Dallas Keuchel was able to handle the reigning MVP. Even with the quiet game, Trout's still hitting .400/.457/.675 and is as good as today's game gets. Apr 18 - 11:53 PM

Mike Trout blasted his way into the record books on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and five RBI as the Angels dispatched of the Astros 6-3.

With his sixth inning blast off Roberto Hernandez, Trout became the youngest player in baseball history to accumulate 100 home runs and 100 stolen bases, accomplishing the feat at 23 years and 253 days old, 56 days younger than the previous record-setter Alex Rodriguez. For good measure, he added a three-run bomb off Chad Qualls in the eighth inning to lead the Halos to victory. Already the game's best all-around player, it's scary to think how much better Trout will become.

Mike Trout finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in Wednesday's rout of the Rangers.

Trout singled and stole a base in the first inning, walked and scored in the second inning, hit an RBI single in the fourth inning, and then singled and scored in the sixth inning. He's batting .438/.500/.594 through his first 38 plate appearances this season.
Apr 15 - 5:33 PM

Mike Trout homered in his first at-bat of the season Monday against Felix Hernandez.

He did fan in his remaining three at-bats. Cutting down on the strikeouts is Trout's priority this year, but given that he was facing King Felix, the K's are excusable. Angels hitters ended up with 12 strikeouts and just four hits on the day.
Apr 6 - 7:36 PM

Mike Trout raised his spring average to .556, going 2-for-2 with two runs scored versus the White Sox on Sunday.

Trout is 10-for-18 as we approach the midpoint of spring training. Of those 10 hits, four are for extra bases and he's scored eight runs as well.
Mar 15 - 7:42 PM

Mike Trout walked, tripled, and scored in three at-bats Saturday versus the White Sox.

Trout tripled and scored in the first inning, helping tie the game up at once apiece at the time. The defending AL MVP is batting .500 in 16 Cactus League at-bats thus far. The only question with Trout pertains to exactly how excellent he'll be in 2015.
Mar 14 - 8:11 PM

Mike Trout had a big day against the Cubs on Thursday, finishing 3-for-3 with two doubles, a stolen base, two RBI, and two runs scored.

Trout, strangely enough, was only the third-biggest story on the afternoon behind Kris Bryant and Will Ferrell. He is now hitting .500 in 14 spring at-bats and appears poised to defend his AL MVP Award heading into 2015. Trout was a fantasy monster as well, hitting 36 home runs, driving in 111 runs, scoring 115 runs, and stealing 16 bases.
Mar 12 - 8:32 PM

Mike Trout blasted his first Cactus League home run of the year, but the Angels suffered a 6-4 loss to the Royals on Sunday.

Trout hit a solo home run off of Abraham Almonte in the fifth inning, extending the Angels' lead at the time to 4-2. He had also singled and scored in the first inning. The defending AL MVP should be going first in all fantasy drafts. Trout led the league in runs scored and RBI last season, and also swatted 36 home runs and stole 16 bases.
Mar 8 - 7:54 PM

Mike Trout beat out a single and knocked in a run in one of his three at-bats Thursday versus the Brewers.

Trout beat out a single to shortstop, plating a run in the process. Trout finally won an MVP award last season and has to be considered the favorite to take home the hardware following this season. He led the league in runs scored with 115 and in RBI with 111 while hitting 36 home runs and stealing 16 bases.
Mar 5 - 7:17 PM

Mike Trout said Thursday that he plans to be more aggressive early in the count this spring.

Trout led the American League with 184 strikeouts last season, so he believes that being more aggressive will lead to fewer strikeouts. "Gonna be locked and loaded on the first pitch," said Trout. Who knows if he'll stick with the approach, but it's worth following. He should be the no-doubt No. 1 overall pick in fantasy leagues regardless.
Mar 5 - 5:04 PM

Mike Trout said Wednesday that two of his biggest goals for this season are to cut down on his strikeouts and increase his stolen bases.

Both goals would be a good thing for fantasy owners. Trout led the AL with 184 strikeouts last season, which he believes was a result of him chasing the high pitch. He plans to show more restraint in 2015, so getting his average closer to .300 again isn't out of the realm of possibility. Trout stole just 16 bases last season after amassing 33 in 2013 and 49 in 2012. We'd like to see some more speed from him, but it would really just be a bonus. He should be the consensus No. 1 pick in most fantasy leagues this year.
Feb 25 - 11:22 AM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Thursday that he is leaning toward batting Mike Trout second this season.

Scioscia indicated in December that he was toying with the idea of batting Trout third, but he said Thursday that the No. 2 spot "is where he fits us best right now," even with Josh Hamilton likely to start the year on the DL. Of course, Trout batted almost exclusively out of the No. 2 spot last year, so Scioscia appears content with the status quo. The 23-year-old should be the first player off the board in most fantasy drafts again this spring.
Feb 19 - 5:02 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Wednesday that he is looking at the possibility of Mike Trout batting third next season.

Trout batted almost exclusively out of the No. 2 spot this past season, but this could be an indication that he has lost faith in Josh Hamilton as a run producer. However, Scioscia cautioned that it's just an idea and that Trout is likely to remain in the No. 2 spot.

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Thursday that Mike Trout has won the 2014 American League MVP award.

He won the award unanimously, easily beating out runner-up Victor Martinez and third-place finisher Michael Brantley. Trout finished second behind Miguel Cabrera in the 2012 and 2013 MVP voting but finally got the award this year after batting .287/.377/.561 while belting a career-high 36 homers while driving in 111 runs.

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Tuesday that Michael Brantley, Victor Martinez and Mike Trout are finalists for the American League MVP award.

Brantley had a breakout season and Martinez saw his power spike in his walk year, but Trout is going to win this one after finishing runner-up the last two seasons. The 23-year-old launched a career-high 36 homers while driving in 111 runs and hitting .287/.377/.561. The winner will be announced next Thursday.
